I'm posting this here at the suggestion of Dylan Hall and Neil Fenemor.
A number of OpenBSD developers will be visiting Victoria University in January. As part of that, they will be giving an informal talk on what they have been working on recently, open to the public.
A number of the OpenSSH and LibreSSL devs will be there, including Theo de Raadt, Bob Beck and Damien Miller, as well as one of the devs who spear-headed the OpenBSD response to Meltdown, among others.
The venue is Lecture Theatre LBLT118, Laby Building, Victoria University, Wellington on 23 January starting at 14:00.
Feel free to contact me if you've any questions.
In response to feedback from operational security communities,
CAIDA's source address validation measurement project
(https://spoofer.caida.org) is automatically generating monthly
reports of ASes originating prefixes in BGP for systems from which
we received packets with a spoofed source address.
We are publishing these reports to network and security operations
lists in order to ensure this information reaches operational
contacts in these ASes.
This report summarises tests conducted within nzl.
Inferred improvements during Nov 2018:
Source Address Validation issues inferred during Nov 2018:

packets is available at:
